Beyond Endorsing the Broadband Vision to Supporting the Vision

Last week I wrote encouraging folks to endorse the Minnesota Broadband Vision:

Everyone in Minnesota will be able to use convenient, affordable world-class broadband networks that enable us to survive and thrive in our communities and across the globe.

So far 25 organizations and 50 people have embraced the vision by joining the Facebook Page and/or getting their organization to more formally endorse the vision through a resolution. The spark ignited by the Blandin Foundation and attendees at the conference has been picked up by the Minnesota Broadband Coalition.

The Coalition (which has been around in various permutations since 2009) is promoting the broadband vision and compiling tools that proponents can use to help spread the word – to legislators, to friends and family who might also want to show support and to local leaders to encourage them to make broadband a priority.

One immediate goal is to get more people and more organizations to endorse the vision. It will show legislators that people in Minnesota think broadband is a priority. It will convene proponents and make it easier to mobilize action to raise awareness and educate people on the need for world-class broadband everywhere.
